Sustainable 6G research chair

An energy sober network for a sustainable Society

This research chair is held by CentraleSupélec and funded by Orange, with the participation of Université Paris-Saclay, CNRS, and CentraleSupélec Foundation. It aims to promote innovation and academic research into designing and managing sustainable, low-energy 6G networks. It will draw on the scientific expertise of the Laboratory of Signals and Systems (L2S), which combines the fundamental and applied mathematical aspects of control theory, and information and communication theory.
